David Bowie passed away earlier this month at the age of 69 after a long battle with cancer and left us with his final album Blackstar. Now the legend’s final wishes have been revealed. In his will, put together in 2004, Bowie requested his body to be cremated in Bali and his ashes “scattered in accordance with the Buddhist rituals,” according to The New York Times.
However if this was “not practical” Bowie requested that his body be cremated in the states and then have his ashes spread on the Indonesian island. Bowie was cremated on January 12th in New Jersey according to the death certificate that was with the will.
He left the majority of his estate, worth $100 million, to his widow Iman Abdulmajid Jones and his two children. Bowie’s children received 25 percent of his estate and his daughter, Alexandria Jones, was given a home in Ulster County, New York. He also left his assistant Corinne Schwab with $ 2 million and stock in a company called Opossum Inc. Alexandria’s nanny was given $1 million.
The will never actually mentions David Bowie who was born David Robert Jones. Bowie never changed his name legally so the document was drawn up as the “Last Will and Testament of David R. Jones.”
